Does anyone know where you can see the whole video?
And I just want to know how he didnt sustain any injuries from going that fast.

Tell me you haven't gone through any sort of physics class... or the facepalm pic is coming out...
 
If you haven't/ What's easier to walk accross: a pond 4 feet deep or a pond 2 inches deep?  The high atmosphere is like the 2 inch deep pond.  As in there are very few (relative to the ground level) molocules of air for your body to push through.  That's how he got going so fast.  Now for not having bodily injury?  Relative to his motion of falling down, his body is going the same speed.  When you take a step forward on a bus, you are only going the speed of the step (relative to the bus), not the speed of the step plus the speed of the bus. Same thing applies to his fall. 
The other possible injury point would be the shock wave of the speed barrier.  You know the pics of the jets breaking it that have the sweet halo around them?  Ya, that.  That could kill a guy really quick.  But, as we said before, there was vitually no air around him to cause friction, or a sonic collaps behind him.
 
If you have/ sham man. shame.

I was going to say a trip to Olive Garden may be in store, but then I realized... what do you do to keep yourself entertained after something like that?? 
haha Well he def earned himself the Tour of Italy dinner and those free bread sticks!!! But I can't see him being able to go beyond what he's just accomplished. Looks like it's all down hill from here on out for Mr. Baumgartner!

"skydive naked from an aeroplane or a lady with a body from outer space my heart, my heart kickstart my heart" Dude may have listened to waay too much Motley Crue in the 80's. Ballsy guy.

Holy snap did that really happen? or was it another mission to the moon?
Just watched the video and if those speeds were accurate, damn he's moving fast!
but he didn't beat the free fall record made back in 1960? That's a little hard to believe.

Did someone mention olive garden? don't you find their food quite salty??

I think the next step is Flying to space on a jet pack then free falling back to earth. That'll be intense!
